Idioms and exhibits
My painting time has been limited this week, as I prepare for the exhibition which opens on Thursday. This evening after work, all the pieces were hung, ready for the opening on October 6th. If you're in the area, I'd love to meet you there. Great art, nibbles and drinks will be on hand from 5 - 7pm at MUN Botanical Garden, 306 Mount Scio Road, St. John's, NL. You can read all the details here.
Here's a little glimpse of one of my pieces that you can see at the exhibit. Its a gyotaku ocean perch, or red fish, as they are often called here. Reflections are part and parcel of pieces framed under glass unfortunately. Drop by on Thursday and I'll tell you how these unique gyotaku prints are created.
Meanwhile I've had a few minutes here and there to add a bit more paint to the carrot & stick painting that I began a few days ago. It set my mind off on lists of idioms or common sayings that could generate paintings...its endless how one idea sparks another, isn't it? Which one would you choose to paint?
